Being voted into our list of the top 10 hottest butts in Hollywood is no easy task. For starters, the woman must have a phenomenal, extraordinary backside. Flat, saggy or average asses need not apply. The ass must be plump, but not too plump; toned, but not cartoonishly so; and as perfectly round as possible. Once the butt meets these characteristics, its owner must be proud of it—someone who won’t shy away from body hugging clothing or a “behind the back” red carpet shot. We feel these A-list women comprise all of the aforementioned butt characteristics, and then some. We hope you agree… See also: Hollywood's Hottest Racks>>>
1. Kim Kardashian
If there’s one thing Kim is phenomenal at (besides getting endorsement deals), it’s showcasing her infamous curves. We’ve seen her amazing ass in dresses, in mini skirts, in tight jeans, in bathing suits, and even in a certain home movie she’d probably like to forget. Sure, this booty is undoubtedly the most overexposed on the list, but what’s a “Hottest Butts” story without Kim K.? We think, not much.
2. Eva Longoria
What this Latina beauty lacks in height, she makes up for in booty. At 5’2, Longoria rocks a perfectly pint-sized bottom—and she’s not shy about acknowledging it. She was once quoted as saying, “It’s shapely and has served me well.” We couldn’t agree more.
3. Jennifer Lopez
That “Apple Bottom Jeans” song might be a long and distant memory, but we can’t help but wonder if T-Pain had Jennifer Lopez in mind while songwriting. Why, you ask? Her beautiful backside and the forbidden fruit have plenty in common—both curvaceous, firm and undeniably sweet.
When your girl group releases a song called “Bootylicious” there’s an expectation that the singer(s) will be able to “back it up,” so to speak. Enter: Beyoncé. With booty-popping dance moves and an ass-shaking strut, this former Destiny’s Child member is the living, breathing definition of bootyliciousness.
5. Jennifer Aniston
Even at 44, Aniston’s derriere manages to blow those of her younger Hollywood peers out of the water. She’s a notorious fitness fiend, which should teach us all the following lesson: hard ass work at the gym will yield a hard ass result.
The Colombian pop star began shaking her thang in that awful-but-amazing “Whenever, Wherever” music video 12 years ago, and we haven’t been able to stop thinking about it since. The good news: We get to see a lot more of her now that she’s mentoring on NBC’s The Voice. The not-so-good-news: Her job involves being seated… the entire time.
7. Jessica Alba
Years ago, Jessica Alba appeared in an unmemorable surfing movie (the name, naturally, is not what’s important here), and that’s when we were first introduced to the wonderful world of her bottom. Things have changed since then—she’s gotten married and had two kids—but thankfully, one thing remains the same: her phenomenal, awe-inspiring backside.
8. Megan Fox
Besides her unusual toe thumbs, is there honestly anything about Megan Fox that’s not perfect? Her eyes, her lips, her abs, her legs…all flawless. All amazing. But let’s get real—Megan’s best asset is her booty. Transformers had very little educational value, but from it, we did learn one thing: what a truly amazing butt looks like in a tiny pair of jean shorts.
9. Eva Mendes
Eva Mendes’s butt isn’t just smoking hot in her clothes—it’s equally as sexy underneath. We know this because of that scene in Training Day. If you’re in need of a refresher, Ethan Hawke’s character walks in to a room and finds Denzel Washington with a partially nude Mendez. We don’t really remember what happens after that. Not that it matters…
10. Jessica Biel
When Biel was playing the tomboyish daughter of a preacher on Seventh Heaven, we never imagined we’d be ogling over her ass years later. Apparently Timberlake had the same idea. He may have wifed her up, but that hasn’t stopped us from fantasizing about Biel’s brilliant bubble butt.
